Saw this Mercedes-Benz W124 250D in the dead of the night. Wheels looked interesting, so took a u-turn to get a closer look. Wheels turned out to be BBS wheels, made for Pininfarina.

Apparently this one is. Can ask if you're interested.
Just out of curiosity, how much do these go for?

Would love to own one someday.

Have been in love with this car ever since my cousin gifted me an original mercedes issues hardbound brochure of the R129 SL Series.

Daimler benz had a small fleet of these ponton Wagons built for use in Non European markets as Service vehicles for their Dealerships. I have a photo (somewhere) of one abandoned in South Africa still in the Mercedes Service blue and white colour scheme .The Barn doors on the rear are different to the actual station wagons custom built on ponton Chassis for regualr customers. Those had a lift up rear door and lay down tail gate.

Spotted this beautiful 1983 W123 240 D at my mechanic's place the other day, it has been with the same family since the mid 1980s and my mechanic has been maintaining it ever since!

The 1977 W123 Mercedes of NCPA founder Dr. Jamshed Bhabha is featured on their instagram page. The original New York plates are still peeking out from under the Indian ones.
